Sunday Style

Hi friends! Sorry for neglecting the blog there's been a lot of things going on at the house - some stressful, some exciting. I'll post more about it this week but for now I figured I'd just back into Sunday Style, this time it's Brandon edition. Enjoy!

Corduroy's in every color

 B's all time favorite shoes. Also know as his 'work boots'.

Gotta have a jean jacket

Filson laptop bag

Striped sweater (B probably wouldn't wear this, but I think it's cute)

White walls

It's so refreshing getting white paint up on the walls and ceiling. I had gotten a little bit of paint up on the walls in the living room and dining room but not enough to call it done or even close to done. I mean, the height of our living room ceiling is probably 16 feet and I'm only 5'3 so there's only so much I can do. Standing on a ladder with a roller extension isn't my cup of tea so we called in the big guns - Finch Custom Painting. Joe was referred to us (by our old painter who moved out of state) and he couldn't be nicer and more professional. He quickly got to work covering up everything in the entryway, living room, dining room and library and started rolling. He patched, sanded and perfected any flaws in the ceiling and I have to say it looks absolutely perfect. Also, I'm not sure if I ever told you the color we settled on, but it's 'Simply White' by Benjamin Moore.

House Progress

You guys, we're hoping to make huge progress on the house these next couple of weeks. George goes to immersion training (basically puppy bootcamp) for two weeks starting today and we're super excited to get some stuff done while he's gone. We have to finish prepping the subfloor on the first floor so Nick can get to work laying the floors and we also need to finish shiplapping the den (it's almost done) so we can prime and paint that before the floors go down. Poor B also needs to finish tearing out the kitchen flooring so we can get that prepped for the hardwood floors as well. We have a painter coming over on tomorrow to paint the ceiling in the great room because 1. I'm afraid of heights and 2. we don't feel like renting scaffolding to do it. That'll make a huge difference once that's done.

All in all, big things are happening that will hopefully make our house feel and look a little more livable, for now, here's some photos of the kitchen progress:
